      Description

      Now with the capability of randomising the seed for random number generation in the WT-6981 changes, we now run an extra set of tests in Evergreen, called unit-test-random-seed. The unit-test-random-seed test suite, only runs tests that needs to utilise the random number generator called suite_random and we randomise the seed with the -R command. Currently the test suite needs to be constantly updated manually, whenever a new test wants to use suite_random, ensuring test coverage.

      Goal:
      This ticket is created, to ensure to improve autonomy in the unit-test-random-seed, through finding a method to not need to maintain the list of tests manually but instead run all tests that use suite_random
